Ebonyi South: Senatorial Aspirant Pledges Comprehensive Empowerment

The Senatorial Aspirant, Comrade Marcelo Nwaji Anyigor has attributed the desire to positively change the fortune of Youths and Women in  Ebonyi South Senatorial District of Ebonyi State as the reason he is seeking to represent them in the Red chamber of the National Assembly.

Comrade Anyigor who is aspiring to be elected as a Senator on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC), stated this in a statement endorsed by himself and made available to newsmen in Abakaliki, yesterday.

The aspirant who acknowledged the level of hardship across the country, however, said he is unhappy with the poverty level in Ebonyi South Senatorial District and further blamed those that have represented the people of Ebonyi South for failing to redeem the situation because they had continued to do the same thing to achieve a better result.

Marcelo further stated that when elected, he would adopt the bottom–top approach in proffering solutions to the mirage of challenges that have hindered the growth and development of the area, noting that he would strive to create employment opportunities and ensure a safe and enabling environment to engage the Youths and Women in various small-scale businesses.

He also promised to engage the Youths and Women through the social intervention programmes of the federal government and also leverage that of the organised private sector.

His words: "We are not all unaware of what the problems of the state are, but the challenge however is that we have constantly used the wrong approach in trying to address the issues.

“As I said, we will adopt bottom–top approach. With this approach, we will periodically hold town hall meetings where the issues in each community and its people will be tabled and jointly
discuss how to address them.

“As for the youths and women that are the centre point of my policy, aside from providing a safe and enabling environment for them to succeed in their craft, they will be trained and provided with starter packs for the training they will receive.

"I will use my contacts to attract developmental projects to my people

“These projects will be sustainable ones that will create employment as well as improve the economy of the federal constituency,” Anyigor said.

He also harped on the need to boost health facilities in the area as the available ones could hardly cater to or address the health needs of the people.
